    HP Compaq Midnite Sale... hype or scam?

    Today me got an email with regards to HP's midnight sale... and being a true IT-bug, waited patiently for midnight to log on and see if I can catch a HP laptop - offered at RM999 !!

    ANd before you can say - JACK FLASH! all five allocated units SOLD OUT!

    Now I wonder if HP Malaysia is truly having a "midnight sale" or is it just another hype to get people to swarm unto their products...

    Another thing that bugged me is - ok, your organisation is gonna do a midnight sale thingy - wouldn't it be wise to have your servers prepared for the traffic - a nerd in the garage would know better than to advertise and not be prepared to be swamped ONLINE...... phahh!

    Tried again to see the midnights specials ...

    ended up with one offer for miserable 20" wide screen LCD screen going for RM988... what the ?? Is that what you would call an offer?? HP Compaq link

    Errr... hello HP. Dell offers their 20" wide screen online everyday at that prices... in fact... cheaper than your price..

    So I guess... your online sales is just a hype per se...

    Can't agree with you more. Felt the same way too. Waited the whole night till midnight, expecting to catch some of the goodies, but alas, it's just another scam by HP. Booooooooo
